Jammin' for Jesus
St. Raymond is a singing community and students grades 5-8 can participate in a musical performance group called Jammin' for Jesus. There are two sections, one instrumental and the other vocal that come together and lead the worship for our monthly school masses, the monthly Family masses which occur at the 9:00am mass on the third Sunday of each month, and other outreach performance opportunities.
Safety Patrol is open to students in 5th grade. Students must have parental permission before joining the patrol. The students are required to be at school at 7:45am (at least one day a week). The patrol oversees the safe arrival of all students to the morning assembly area.
California Jr. Scholastic Federation (CJSF)
The California Junior Scholarship Federation (CJSF) is a statewide organization of over 865 chapters.

CJSF emphasizes service to the school and community while creating pride in scholastic achievement.
At the end of each trimester, 7th and 8th grade students are eligible to apply for CJSF, an honor club. Eligibility and requirements are available through the moderator. Students in CJSF plan and organize a service project that benefits St. Raymond students.
